Low-cost tablet-based EEG device for epilepsy diagnosis and classification


  • The low-cost tablet-based electroencephalography device used here was able to detect epileptiform discharges (EDs) in a reproducible manner across two measurements and supported clinical diagnoses.

Why this matters

  • EEGs are widely used in high income countries to diagnose and classify people with epilepsy; in lower income countries the high cost of these diagnostic equipment is a major barrier to care of people with epilepsy.

  • A low-cost tablet-based EEG software application coupled with electrode caps wirelessly transferring data to the tablet have been developed by this group which previously demonstrated high specificity and reduced sensitivity.
